/// Return the next difference RR of difference sequences.
/// In this API, the difference between two versions of a zone is
/// conceptually represented as IXFR-style difference sequences:
/// Each difference sequence is a sequence of RRs: an older version of
/// SOA (to be deleted), zero or more other deleted RRs, the
/// post-transaction SOA (to be added), and zero or more other
/// added RRs. (Note, however, that the underlying data source
/// implementation may or may not represent the difference in
/// straightforward realization of this concept. The mapping between
/// the conceptual difference and the actual implementation is hidden
/// in each derived class).
/// This method provides an application with a higher level interface
/// to retrieve the difference along with the conceptual model: the
/// \c ZoneJournalReader object iterates over the entire sequences
/// from the beginning SOA (which is to be deleted) to one of the
/// added RR of with the ending SOA, and each call to this method returns
/// one RR in the form of an \c RRset that contains exactly one RDATA
/// in the order of the sequences.
/// Note that the ordering of the sequences specifies the semantics of
/// each difference: add or delete. For example, the first RR is to
/// be deleted, and the last RR is to be added. So the return value
/// of this method does not explicitly indicate whether the RR is to be
/// added or deleted.
/// This method ensures the returned \c RRset represents an RR, that is,
/// it contains exactly one RDATA. However, it does not necessarily
/// ensure that the resulting sequences are in the form of IXFR-style.
/// For example, the first RR is supposed to be an SOA, and it should
/// normally be the case, but this interface does not necessarily require
/// the derived class implementation ensure this. Normally the
/// differences are expected to be stored using this API (via a
/// \c ZoneUpdater object), and as long as that is the case and the
/// underlying implementation follows the requirement of the API, the
/// result of this method should be a valid IXFR-style sequences.
/// So this API does not mandate the almost redundant check as part of
/// the interface. If the application needs to make it sure 100%, it
/// must check the resulting sequence itself.
/// Once the object reaches the end of the sequences, this method returns
/// \c Null. Any subsequent call will result in an exception of
/// class \c InvalidOperation.
/// \exception InvalidOperation The method is called beyond the end of
/// the difference sequences.
/// \exception DataSourceError Underlying data is broken and the RR
/// cannot be created or other low level data source error.
